jammu farmers have awakened to new diseases

While working in plant health clinic, one thing we come accross is the emergence of new age disease in our region that too acroos the crops. A matter to worry  both for researchers/ extension workers to update their knowledge banks and for farmers too get ready too face these new challanges. some of them we noticed recently are

Tungro virus in paddy

Verticillium wilt in solanaceous crops

Corn blotch leaf minor in maize

This is mainly because of poor qurantine procedures that the flow of hybrid and other seeds from other part of the country is not checked properly
